Trapped in the past, Iron Man races the clock to save the future from annihilation. But his past self is in a drunken stupor, and Tony's fellow Avengers, dismiss his story as an alcoholic delusion. The keys to saving Tony's future? Hank Pym...exiled Avenger and one of the Avengers' greatest enemies: Ultron! Christos Gage (AVENGERS ACADEMY) teams with comics legends LEE WEEKS and TOM PALMER - inker of more issues of Avengers than anyone else - to bring you an all-out epic in the mighty Marvel manner! THEN! Tony's next stop is Captain Britain's London, a totalitarian state bent on a new, 'cleaner' future. Rob Williams teams with Ben Oliver (Ms. Marvel) as Iron Man and Captain Britain fight for freedom!

    Now, if this issue only contained the Avengers story, it's an EASY perfect score. Probably one of the easiest perfect scores I've given out all year. The story was PURE 80's Avengers perfection. I mean you can tell Gage KNOWS those Avengers characters! It was literally like picking up one of my old Avengers trades or back issues and reliving a past story! That's how good this issue was!

    Yet, somehow it was worth it. This double-sized issue brims with fabulous art and remarkable, thoughtful story-telling. We transport into the mind of the frazzled and weakened Stark and get meaningful perspective on the present, past and future of Marvel Comics. Read Full Review

    This story " this series " is part "Marvel Team-Up," part "Avengers Forever" and every bit the entertaining type of tale you deserve to find in your summer comics. Of course, if the price point drives you away, or the story itself seems a little too conveniently measured out for you to not wait for the trade, well then it'll still be a great story that you deserve in your whatever-time-of-the-year reading.

Unfortunately, that individual is wearing a feather boa at the moment. Drunk out of his mind, present day Tony dons his old armor and approaches the Avengers: a neophyte Captain Marvel, She-Hulk, Starfox, Cap, Thor and the Wasp, then leader of the team.

    Each full-length story in this book tells an enjoyable story, but neither is entirely captivating. Some details don't quite ring true like why Tony jumps around the past Quantum Leap-style, but, as it seems that the journey will be more important than the destination in this series, perhaps it doesn't matter.
